Our village

Sutton is a small hamlet of some 300 people, located in Bedfordshire near the towns of Potton, Sandy and Biggleswade. It comprises a church, school,  public house, golf club and a village hall.

Origins

 

All Saints Church was built in the 12th Century and Sutton Castle soon after, cerca 1220.

 

In the 14th Century, John of Gaunt, son of King Edward III, resided close to where the John O'Gaunt Golf Club is now.

The Packhorse Bridge

The beautiful Packhorse Bridge over Potton Brook was built in the 14th or 15th Century to support wool transportation between the towns of Bedford and Dunstable.

 

It provides an ideal location for the annual Sutton duck race. See our Events page for details of this very popular event.
